Liked: By far the best hostel I've ever stayed in anywhere in the world. I've stayed in hundreds of hostels and am ashamed to say I've never bothered to write a review before. But this was too special! Thanks so much!

Disliked: When the only thing you can think of to dislike is that the toilet paper wasn't quilted I think you know youve found a gem!!

Liked: It was one of the nicest hostels I've ever been to. So bummed I was only there for one night. It was very spacious and very social. The tv room was really big with nice sofas. The internet access was great because for once it was modern and there were plenty of computers. The hostel itself is in a good location, only 10 minutes from the train station and with places to eat and drink very near by.

Disliked: We all had to shut up around 11 o'clock. We weren't even being loud, just having a chat and we kept getting told to 'keep it down'. We were told we should either go out or go to bed. It was ridiculous.

Liked: Very clean, very spacious, bright.. free internet access, free pasta, free sauna. What I love the most is that they have a kitchen with shelves of leftover groceries for reuse - I am a big fan of this concept. More importantly, their staff are very friendly and helpful, especially Lars and Niels!

Disliked: My shampoo got stolen, but that's a minor issue.
